Forest House, Viney Hill (General)

by paul halford @, Monday, June 08, 2020, 07:18 (67 days ago)

My gt gt uncle, Edwin Halford, lived in Forest House near All Saints church Viney Hill. He is registered t that address in the 1911 census and died at that address in 1956. I have a photograph of Forest House with All Saints church in the background taken approx 1910-1920 co I have a rough idea where it should be. I can find no mention of it on old maps and looking at present day maps, it would seem the house does not exist anymore. Does anyone have any information on Forest House? When it was built or what happened to it. My 2x gt uncle and his father, Nehemiah Halford, were stone masons so I always imagined that one or the other built the house.

thanks

It would be best to search for the surname : Halford, for example, here's another one - on the Lloyd George Land survey

Place: Awre

Occupied by: POLLARD, Thos (M)

People holding property: HALFORD, Neh (M) owner (just Neh this time)

this again is for a house and garden at Viney Hill

size: 1 rood, 5 perches.

etc.

etc.

This Nehemiah HALFORD is listed quite a few times.

Thanks. I haven't found the information I'm looking for yet but it seems it could be a very useful site.
